Deep Winter: Coffee Stout

Deep Winter both describes, and is the prescription for, that “special” time of the year every seasoned Midwesterner is more than familiar with.  To help the libation bearer break through to Spring thaw, we decided to do a complete substitute of coffee for hops.  With a lighter roast used for a soft bittering effect, and a richer Guatemalan bean used for the flavor and aroma, we wish you luck in determining exactly where the ambrosial waves of coffee end and the luscious beer begins.  $5.50/pint  $16/growler fill

Silk Scorpion: Black IPA

Filled with equal parts of intense dusky citrus hops and dark malt flavors, this seasonal is seductively smooth, silky, and graceful, yet packs a hop punch for the hop-heads.  The hops induce thoughts of grapefruit, blood orange, apricot, and tangerine as they intermingle with black, chocolate, and roasted varieties of barley smoothed out with a dash of oatmeal.   $5.50/pint  $16/growler fill

Fantasy Factory: IPA

Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.   $4.75/pint   $13/growler fill

NightCall: Smoked Porter

Robust all day without dictating your life, this is the porter that other dark beers hang a poster of on their own bedroom wall.  Malt sweetness is just present enough to enhance the dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavors without destroying the drinkability. This brew provides a subtle smoke profile that simultaneously creates new fans of dark beer and tames the beast inside the bold-beer aficionado.  $4.50/pint  $12/growler fill


SamuRyePA: Rye American Pale Ale

Quaffing this brew is like sticking your face into a box of Fruit Loops. Bohemian pilsner malt combines with three types of rye to offer just enough malt sophistication to provide glass-smooth mouthfeel while complementing, rather than competing with, the distinct and intensely flavorful resume of bright citrus hops.  $4.25/pint  $11/growler fill


Block Party: Amber Ale

The amber you’ve always wanted. Crisp and clean, but full of flavor: milk caramel, toasted biscuit, and sweet wheat. A medium-bodied brew that has character yet remains an all-game drinker that always satisfies, never disappoints, and plays well with many types of food.  $4/pint  $10/growler fill


Lady Luck: Irish Red

More than just a beer to satisfy and soothe - it’s an emotional experience. Deepest ruby red and filled with a symphony of malt flavors including caramel, toffee, raisins, and currants that finish with a simple hint of roast and chocolate tones lingering like a half-remembered dream. This gentle giant, balanced with English hops, dominates all senses without destroying the palate.  Sexy. As. Hell.  $4.50/pint  $12/growler fill


UnderCover: Session Ale

This is a beer for craft lovers seeking satisfaction of mind and mouth, as well as folks about to discover that they are fans of beer done right.  Golden in color, crisp from start to finish with a distinct profile of bread and biscuit malt flavors, and just enough hops to keep things interesting and thirst quenching…a true session ale.  $4/pint   $10/growler fill
